NOTES: First, they have a "leadership" attitude, which is an attitude that tells others that they are not afraid to make decisions and take risks. And it is an attitude that shows they have the best interests of their organization in mind. Second, leaders behave in distinctive ways as they nurture others. There are "language techniques that can move employees to action. And there are specific ways to develop the creativity of employees. The difference between leaders and managers is that managers must deal with the "technical" aspects of running an organization. Leaders must deal with the "people" aspects. Both kinds of skills are necessary to succeed. To be perceived as a LEADER, there are specific skills that can be learned, especially the "leadership attitude." This essential attitude is one that says "I care more about us than about me." It says, "I am willing to put my own welfare on the line for you." And it says, "I understand what needs to be done. I am going to help us all succeed."
NOTES: Adult.
